22 THE NEW YORK MAGAZINE PROGRAM [[image]] SOLE SATISFYING That music at the Paramount Grill CHARLIE KERR and his music A NEW THRILL FOR NEW YORK 40 Gertrude Hoffmann Girls SENSATIONAL FLOOR REVUE Delicious Dinner and After-Theatre Supper HOTEL PARAMOUNT GRILL NO COVER CHARGE AT ANY TIME 46 St. West of B'way Charles L. Ornstein, Manager TIDINGS FROM DETROIT WHAT with all this NRA confusion, the uproar over monetary policy, and rumblings of labor disturbances, we were at the point of pulling Marx to our bosom, when, like the rising bubble in a goblet of champagne, up popped a sparkling new idea. Perhaps we had been letting dark headlines becloud our thinking. Perhaps, to lean on that staunch old phrase, things are not so bad after all. As if in confirmation came word from a Detroit informant that yearners after the good old days of handicraft, those sighing for the spreading chestnut tree and the ringing anvil, have not sighed in vain - that the blacksmith shop is with us still. And it has migrated straight into the automobile factory which is supposed to have put it out of business. It is living and thriving in the midst of the enemy. We wouldn't have believed it if the informant hadn't sent visual photographic proof. But there it was: Snout-nosed anvil crudely strapped to a huge wooden block. Tin-sheathed forge sending coal smudge through a stove-pipe chimney. The picture was complete even to the poker in the coal box and a square tin container full of water beneath the forge to quench the glowing metal. By the anvil stood two hairy-armed prototypes of the ancient smithy. (Hairy chested, too, we'd wager, although we couldn't see because they wore shirts and roughly knotted ties.) They were making not a shoe for Old Dobbin or an axle for the spring wagon, but a new part for the automobile you will buy next year. They are two of several smithys, we learn, regularly employed in the experimental laboratory of the Chevrolet Motor Company. They build by hand the new parts some inventive young engineer designs. If the part works, they go into production. If they don't, they go into the hell-box of all unworthy things. Even a great division of General Motors can't proceed with its vaunted Policy of Progress without borrowing from the past, without making gigantic precision machinery await the turning of the humble forge. There can't be much wrong in a world where anvils still ring and hot embers skitter off the rafters.
